The Jewish Heritage Collection at the College of Charleston Special
Collections recently launched the A Synagogue A Day Tumblr. Built using
a popular blogging format, this website features prints, photographs,
and postcards of synagogues around the world from the William A. Rosenthall
Judaica collection. You can also follow A Synagogue A Day via Twitter.

The William A. Rosenthall Judaica collection consists of over 100 linear
feet of rare books, fine art, postcards, illustrated journals, greeting
cards, pamphlets, broadsides, newspapers, cartoons, caricatures,
etchings, chromolithographs, watercolors, medallions, stamps, and
textiles. The materials document the Jewish people: their lives,
history, religious ceremonies, dress, and customs. A particular
collecting focus of Rosenthall was images of synagogues located around
the globe, including European synagogues destroyed by the Nazis or converted
to stables and warehouses. Many items are one-of-a-kind and therefore
represent a unique and valuable source for scholars. For more
information on Rosenthall and his collection, please visit the William
A. Rosenthall website: http://rosenthall.library.cofc.edu/
This is a great chance for us to see the synagogues where our ancestors
prayed. Other parts of his collection will be coming on line as they
are digitized. Also check out the Jewish Heritage Collection,
http://spinner.cofc.edu/~jhc/?referrer=webcluster&, and The Jewish
Historical Society of South Carolina, www.jhssc.org, for information
about Jews in South Carolina.
